'Spy Kids' Reboot on Netflix

The Spy Kids franchise is set to make a comeback with the fifth film in the series. Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Everly Carganilla, and Connor Esterson will star in the film, which will debut on Netflix. Fans will also be happy to know that this reboot will be headed by the original screenwriter and director Robert Rodriguez, but Skydance Media, the production company responsible for the project, plans to completely reimagine the story. So far, no word on the film's release date.

Jon Snow Getting 'Game of Thrones' Spinoff 

Thronies, this is not a drill. Game of Thrones author and series creator George R.R. Martin announced that a Jon Snow spinoff is in the works. The GOT series, based on the bestselling novels, first premiered in 2011 on HBO and ended in 2019 — leaving many fans mostly unsatisfied. So far, no release date has been revealed for the new show, but fans might find solace in knowing that Jon Snow actor Kit Harrington is playing a major role in its development. The Jon Snow story will be just one of several spinoffs with House of Dragon is set to premiere on August 21. 

Khaby Lame, King of TikTok

Khaby Lame took the world by storm with his viral TikTok videos that, oddly enough, often had no sound but a simple gesture that universally signals "are you serious." Now 22-year-old Lame is reigning supreme among TikTok's most influential after he took over the top spot as the platform's most-followed user. More than 147 million people tune in to watch his content and some of that success can be attributed to a nationwide TikTok ad last year that also featured former NBA star, Allen Iverson. Though he is now the most-followed account on the platform, Lame was not among the top 10 earners last year, according to a Sensor Tower study.
